Continuing Coverage @ National Level
Most of this segment focuses on the National coverage of 9/11. Great job by Tom Brokaw once again with regards to the overall flow and continuity of coverage during this segment.
The comments regarding WTC7 are from speculative reports - similar to those earlier in the day of a car bomb exploding outside the State Department. At the time Brokaw was reporting this, WTC7 had not yet collapsed.
Anyone wondering how WTC7 could possibly collapse only needs to consider the shear volume of debris that fell on it after the collapse of WTC1 and WTC2. If you've ever been down to Lower Manhattan, you know how closely together these sites were packed. The fact that even more buildings weren't lost this day due to the collapsing towers is one of the few lucky breaks we received on this horrific day.

Tom Brokaw announces WTC 7's collaspe 1 hour before event
This video is proof that the WTC 7's story was on the wire before it was destroyed from spontaneous combustion. 1 person dies in this building. In this video we do not see the total and complete collaspe of the building. It will fall breaking free fall speed and into it's own footprint. The video does contain a good shot of the building's minor fire. Spanning 2 seprate floors. The fire is suspicious because it looks like it is targeted at certain floors. It would be a good fire to destroy documents, but not nearly big enough to cause the 3rd ever collaspe of a steel framed building.
